In November, the Inland Northwest Land Conservancy announced the release of the new River to Ridges Spokane Trail Map that details 10 area hikes. Printed on waterproof and tear-resistant paper, the map was created to help more people explore and navigate the many trails and natural areas around Spokane. Each trail was carefully chosen by local trail advocates and enthusiasts with the hope of providing the best experience at numerous unique urban wildlands. The map includes 10 smaller, detailed maps with trail descriptions. Many of the routes described are easier ones perfect for beginner hikers and those who are new to Spokane. The map also includes some of the conservation story of each area, which are all public lands managed by Washington State Parks, Spokane County Parks, or City of Spokane Parks and Recreation. The map is currently for sale for $5 at several Spokane stores, including Mountain Gear, REI, Main Market Food Co-Op, and Northwest Outdoors.
